Property: first-time buyers risking budget overspend on style over substance

Hi first time home buyers- I just came across this article and reeled.. please look into buying your first house now- rates are low. if you can't buy where you live, buy in a cheaper area, west va, pa, where you parents live and rent it out. Build equity, then do the fixups for the "perfect home." There's no such thing (or rarely) a perfect home, because you keep growing and living and your lifestyle evolves. But you owning a good property that appreciates or cash flows with such love interest rates- this is a true win for you. #realtor #investor #buyerswinning

First-time buyers are budgeting an average £11,263 for their first properties, as many turn to Instagram for styling tips.

Plastics: What’s Recyclable, What Becomes Trash — And Why

A helpful and interactive article about which plastics are resuable and which plastics are trash and why. Seems like the question we all have in our communities.. #realtor #smitasells

Knowing what to recycle is confusing. Here's a look at the process, from store to recycling facility.

43 Questions to Ask Before Picking a New Town

I hear a lot about clients needing neighborhoods with the "best schools" and test scores, and years later them lamenting how competitive and time intensive their area is wrt schools and their kids. Then I saw this article and it was about the value difference. I LOVED this quote about test scores as a group and individually because it represents diversity, excellence and choice. And that you can have an area that may not have the best scores, but it has great children- some still learning English or learning a different skill set, while others are mastering skills that get high scores on tests.

[But Ms. Peterson was taken with the place. So she wrote to the mayor, Kimberley Driscoll, and asked her to sell her and her husband on Salem and explain the school district’s test scores. If Ms. Driscoll had not replied, or had passed the letter off to an aide, that would have spoken volumes. Instead, she wrote back and explained that average scores were not likely to rise much because of the community’s commitment to diversity and to teaching students for whom English is a second language. Any individual child’s education, however, wasn’t necessarily reflected in averages, the mayor reminded Ms. Peterson.

In 2011, the couple moved in. “Our biggest surprise,” Ms. Peterson said, “is how much we have loved it."]

Rather than using a standard checklist of what to ask when looking for a place to live, a values audit could yield more happiness for less money.

NINJIO S2:E2 The Homeless Homebuyer - PSA

Smita's Housekeeping- How to keep your money safe from cybercriminals at closing. It's a VERY good short video to watch as cybercrime wrt real estate is a billion dollar industry, and title companies have thieves asking them several times a week to send money elsewhere.

If you don't have time to watch the video, remember this:
always call your agent or title company before sending/wiring money for closing;
wires cannot be undone;
agents and title companies- such as Long and Foster and RGS Title will NEVER email you to change wiring instructions.
If in doubt, CALL your agent.

If you are looking for an agent who can take care of you and help make the process easy, call me at 703–307–0217 or pm me. #realtor #longandfoster #findingyourhome

Applying for a mortgage? Shop the rate (and prepare for paperwork if you’re self-employed) | WTOP

It’s getting easier for the growing self-employed population to become approved for a mortgage…slowly but surely! However, if you are self-employed get ready for a lot of additional paperwork! Here’s what to expect:

For homebuyers applying for a mortgage, the work starts well before you actually apply for it, and for self-employed mortgage seekers, the work can be even more daunting.

63% of Realtors are women, but that wasn’t always the case! In fact, when the National Association of Realtors was first started its members were 100% men, despite the 3,000 women already working as Realtors across the country.
